Importing from Thesaurus Payroll Manager 2017


Changing from Thesaurus Payroll Manager 2017 to BrightPay 2018

If you choose to change from using Thesaurus Payroll Manager to BrightPay, you can import your Thesaurus Payroll Manager directly into BrightPay at any stage of the year, i.e. at the commencement of the new tax year or mid way through the tax year.

The smoothest transition will be to import at the start of the tax year so that the historical payroll detail, payslips and periodical reports all reside in the one program.

To facilitate the changeover to BrightPay 2018, all employee records can be imported directly from Thesaurus Payroll Manager 2017.

To import your previous year’s company and employee details from Thesaurus Payroll Manager, simply click ‘Import Employer’ on the ‘Open Employer’ screen, followed by ‘Import from Thesaurus Payroll 2017…’ > "Start at the beginning of 2018"


 

 

Here you will be given two options – to import from your Thesaurus Payroll Manager installation folder or to import using a Thesaurus Payroll Manager employer backup file.

Important Note

 

In both import cases, it is always recommended that all company and employee details are verified before processing any payroll to ensure information imported across is still applicable and correct for the new tax year.

Benefit in Kind, additions and deductions (including pension deductions) will NOT import, therefore these must be set up in the first pay period for each applicable employee.
